As seen on Blake Lively, this undone, wavy side ponytail is just adorable. It's a super relaxed, pretty look, which is what brunch is all about!

How to style it

Step 1

Starting with damp hair, spritz Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray throughout. Dry your hair in twisted sections to set the strands into loose, natural looking waves.

Step 2

Once dried, re-spray your hair and use a 1 ½" curling iron to create some more waves through the lengths of your hair if necessary.

Step 3

Part your hair slightly to one side with a wide-tooth comb. This will give you an accurate line without compromising the tousled texture with a brush.

Step 4

Gather your hair over the opposite shoulder to your part. At the back, pin the hair messily in place so it sits to one side when you let go of the ends. Tie the lengths of your hair into a loose, low pony, allowing some pieces to fall out around your face.

Step 5

Wrap a small piece of hair around the hair tie to camouflage it, then complete the look with plenty of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.

2. Braided headband

If you end up brunching just hours after getting in from a late night, a braided headband will hide your roots if you don't have time to wash your hair.

How to style it

Step 1

Spritz your roots with Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Longwear Spray, massage it in, then brush your hair through. The dry shampoo will absorb excess oil while lifting the hair at the root for a refreshed look.

Step 2

Part your hair roughly in the middle or slightly off-center.

Step 3

Take two pieces of hair, one from behind each each, and braid them both all the way down to the ends.

Step 4

Pull the braids up, twist them, and wrap them over the top of your head to create the headband. Secure with bobby pins.

Step 5

Complete the look with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray to eliminate flyaways and prevent frizz.

3. Low wavy ponytail

A low, wavy ponytail is easy to style and really cute so it looks great with any chic weekend outfit you're planning to wear to brunch.

How to style it

Step 1

Starting with damp hair, spritz Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray throughout. Blow-dry your hair in twisted pieces to set the strands into loose waves. Once dried, use a 1" curling iron to add more waves if necessary.

Step 2

Mist the roots at the crown of your head with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray and massage them with your fingertips to increase height.

Step 3

Loosely sweep your hair back into a low ponytail and secure it. Take a piece of hair from the ponytail and wind it around the base to camouflage the ponytail. Pin it in place underneath.

Step 4

Complete the look with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray for long lasting waves.

4. Chic chignon

An elegant, pretty chignon is never a bad idea, and Freida Pinto 's 1920s inspired look proves it. If you want a pulled-together updo for brunch, this is it!

How to style it

Step 1

Apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream to damp hair, then blow-dry your hair with the concentrator attached. Use a paddle brush to keep the hair smooth during the blowout.

Step 2

Once dried, part your hair deep on one side, then use a 1" curling iron to create waves through the lengths.

Step 3

Brush your hair to smooth the waves, then gather it into a low ponytail at the back, slightly to one side of the nape of your neck.

Step 4

Pin the lengths of the pony to the back of your head to form the chignon, working in small sections.

Step 5

When your hair is all up, complete the look with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray to add shine and eliminate flyaways.

5. Messy knot

How to style it

Step 1

Spritz damp hair with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray. Make sure you cover the hair from roots to ends to protect your hair from heat damage. Rough dry your hair, using your hands instead of a brush to create a slightly mussed, natural looking texture.

Step 2

When the hair is almost dry, twist a section of hair and finish drying it in that position. Repeat at random intervals around your head.

Step 3

Once dried, don't brush your hair. Simply use your hands to part it in the middle or slightly off center, then gather it at the back. Before you create the knot, gently pull a couple of pieces loose at the front. Then, tie your hair into a low pony an inch or so above the nape of your neck.

Step 4

Twist and pin pieces of the pony to the back of your head to form a textured, slightly messy knot.

Step 5

When all your hair is up, gently tease a few small wispy pieces of hair loose around it, then complete the look with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.

6. Lazy girl chignon

Sticking with a less-is-more approach to styling, this easy, lazy girl chignon is the perfect brunch hairstyle if you don't want to bother with any intricate styling techniques.

How to style it

Step 1

Apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream to damp hair, then blow-dry it. Use a paddle brush to guide your strands straight, but don't worry if they aren't perfect. Once dried, brush your hair through to smooth it, then define a part wherever you normally would.

Step 2

Gather it into a low, loose knot at the nape of your neck and secure with a hair tie. Make sure it's really low so that there's some slack between the knot and the back of your head - you can gently pull it out a little with your hands if necessary.

Step 3

Lift the knot and pin it in the middle of the back of your head. Don't worry if everything looks a little off-kilter, it's supposed to. Tease a few pieces of hair loose at the front to frame your face and soften the look.

Step 4

Add shine and keep unwanted flyaways at bay with a mist of Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Spray to complete the look.

Like a disheveled knot or tousled ponytail, a twisted bun will keep your hair up and under control while creating a soft silhouette that looks good on everybody.

How to style it

Step 1

Unwashed second day hair works best with this style, so there's no need to wash your locks first. Instead, add even more grip with Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Longwear Spray. The dry shampoo formula will help your strands to bind together easily while absorbing any excess oil at the root.

Step 2

Lift the hair at the crown and mist the roots with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray. Tease it from behind to add some extra volume, then sweep it back.

Step 3

Starting with the top layers, twist and pin sections of hair to form a chignon at the back of your head. Make sure the twists are fairly tight before you secure them. Continue twisting and pinning individual pieces of hair until it's all up.

Step 4

Mist your completed style generously with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.

12. Braided crown

If you don't mind making an effort to get a cute, seemingly effortless hairstyle, a braided crown is the perfect brunch-friendly updo for you!

How to style it

Step 1

Start by brushing your hair to remove any knots and tangles as they can make braiding way more difficult than it needs to be.

Step 2

Split your hair into two halves, as if you were going to create pigtails.

Step 3

French braid each side, then when you get to the nape of your neck, keep braiding the hair normally all the way to the ends.

Step 4

Wrap the braids around your head, crossing them at the nape of your neck and pulling the ends upward. Secure with bobby pins.

Step 5

Complete the look with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.
